God's truth has given us ....

2 Timothy 1:14 NLT
Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you.

Don't you love gifts?  There are some people (and I am one of them) that really like to get gifts.  It doesn't have to be big stuff.  It can be small and in-expensive things.  But if you get gifts all the time, it does get old.

Do we see the truth God gives us as a gift?  When we get used to getting or having, we take things for granted.  When we get desensitized to things, we tend to stop being grateful for the gifts that come our way.  The truth of God is a huge gift.  What has this truth done for you.

His truth has ... forgiven and freed us from sin.  His truth has ... given us eternal life and promise of heaven.  His truth has given us ... peace and purpose to live.  His truth given us ... a reason to be good to others and to share hope.  His truth has given us ... strength to get through the tough times and insight to see through pain.  His truth has given us ... confidence and security.  His truth has given us ... a friend in God and made us children of God.

Those truths are powerful promises in our lives.  We must take them as gifts from God, thank God for them and live like they are reality because they are.

Often we allow Satan to get to us and lie to us.  Often we don't believe what God says.  When we live blameless lives and live close to God, we will see the truth of God has sweet gifts God has given us.  It is time to see His truth as the gifts that they are!

Proverbs 13:6 NLT
Godliness guards the path of the blameless, but the evil are misled by sin.
